Mousse cake complements a vegetarian Thanksgiving

To complement the lighter foods associated with vegetarian Thanksgivings, we decided to come up with a dessert that also leaned to the lighter side of the culinary spectrum. From top to bottom, this lemon pecan mousse cake is airy, with a refreshingly delicate sweetness.
